A senior manager at a hotel chain in the Midwest takes issue with a female employees’ “Ellen DeGeneres” looking appearance, short hair, and lack of makeup indicating that she is “not attractive enough” to work at the front desk of the hotel.
The front desk role was actually a position that the employee was promoted into. Despite the fact that this employee received good performance reviews, she was eventually fired from her job. The employee sued the hotel chain for sexual discrimination, and won. You can learn more about the details of this extremely interesting discrimination case at “Legal Update”.
This is a great best management practices article on how not to treat employees in the workplace.
